lol. With all the wind we've had today, I reckon they'll be knocked flat before they open. Glad your lily opened though - very pure:o)

The other trick, if you want to delay a flower from opening, is tie some cotton round it

Oh you've made me laugh. I now have visions of you and Andrewr with cotton and hairdryers making Chelsea flower show last every day. You put me to shame when I cant keep up with the weeding!

Glad it made you laugh Ss and I can see why, but honestly I can't keep up with the weeding either - so no Chelsea for me!
